Coopérations en matière économique

Economic cooperation

At the end of World War II, a series of initiatives were launched in an attempt to rebuild the economies of Europe, left devastated by five years of deadly conflict. The emergency aid schemes that were set up aimed to meet the pressing need for food supplies among the local population and also to deliver vital products such as coal and steel for heavy industry.
